Default Behavior

Delivery Optimization is a Win32 service. In Windows 10 it is starting automatically when the operating system starts. Then the Delivery Optimization service is running as LocalSystem in a shared process of svchost.exe along with other services. If Delivery Optimization fails to start, the failure details are being recorded into Event Log. Then Windows 10 will start up and notify the user that the DoSvc service has failed to start due to the error.

Dependencies

Delivery Optimization cannot be started under any conditions, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is disabled.

The DoSvc service is using the svchost.exe file that is located in the %WinDir%\system32 folder. If the file is changed, damaged or deleted, you can restore its original version from Windows 10 installation media.
